Product features

Who's the product for?

Your client must be aged 55 or over and receiving verifiable pension income. For joint applications, both of your clients must be aged 55 or over and each applicant must be able to individually satisfy affordability.

Your clients can use the sale of their home as their repayment strategy provided they have a minimum of 40% equity in their property. Up to 25% of the property value can be released for capital raising purposes.

Where the case is in joint names the clients must demonstrate the loan is affordable upon the death of either borrower. This can be established either by a transfer of pension rights, a specific life policy to clear the mortgage balance or any joint investments.

Product related fees

There is an arrangement fee of £999. This fee can be paid up front by deducting the fee from the amount borrowed. Alternatively you can add the fee to the mortgage amount. 

If you add the fee to your mortgage you will pay interest on the fee at the same rate as your mortgage.

There is a £99 booking fee which is non-refundable, non-transferable.

Product incentives

Free standard valuation: We'll cover the cost of a standard valuation on a property valued up to £400,000. Properties valued over £400,000 will receive a contribution of £350 towards the cost.

Legal fees cashback: Clients must nominate their own solicitor but will receive £250 cashback from the society towards their legal fee costs.

Mortgage amounts

The minimum mortgage amount is £50,000 and the maximum mortgage amount is £1,000,000.

There's a minimum property value of £75,000 which increases to £250,000 for properties located within the M25 corridor.

The maximum loan to value is 60% of the purchase price or valuation, whichever is lower.

Mortgage repayment terms

The minimum repayment term is 5 years but there is no maximum repayment term. 

The mortgage must be repaid following a life event, including:

  • death of the sole borrower or the surviving borrower for joint mortgages;
  • sole borrower or surviving borrower for joint mortgages entering long-term residential care; or
  • sale of the property.
Early Repayment Charges
